Re: [linux-lvm] Converting my Root file system to LVM



Having looked at another thread also with Root boot problems, I've had a
look at my kernel (2.4.3) .config file options for the initrd.  Since my
lilo.conf file has the RAM disk size set to 8192, would the kernel
setting (4096) get in the way of this?

CONFIG_BLK_DEV_LOOP=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_NBD=m
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM_SIZE=4096
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD=y
